We always read, and see pictures of beautiful women, but what about the male babes. Okay I was watching Dancing With The Stars, and I said hubba hubba hubba that is one PRETTYman. Yes, he is handsome, but he is pretty. Do you know a pretty man from a handsome man. There is really a difference. Rick Fox is also a Metro sexual man. He is the ex-husband of the beautiful Vanessa Williams. They are still great friends, and he still has dinner with her from time to time. OK just as a heads up I will be saying hot dang a bit during this hub. HOT DANG Rick Fox is pretty, fine, hot, handsome, delicious, and the whole bag of chips! (LOL) Now let's get on with it. Perhaps I want to say five years ago I did not know who was Rick fox. Pretty sad huh? Mr. Fox played for the Lakers, and has made several television cameo appearances. He also has had a recurring role on Ugly Betty.
The Facts on Rick
The top ten I am listing is NOT according to any particular list, it is just a list of MY list of top ten pretty men. Okay, so what is a pretty man? A man who has soft, delicate features, a pretty man is just like a piece of chocolate that melt in your mouth when you look at him. Some pretty men, are in touch with their feminine side, such as Rick Fox.
Mr. Fox's birth name is Ulrich Alexander Fox, he does not look like an Ulrich. Can you imagine growing up with the name Ulrich? Born in Ontario, Canada, and lived in Toronto before coming to the States. Dire heart sports fans know of Mr. Fox from the NBA, he played for the Boston Celtics, and the Los Angeles Lakers. Not only is Mr. Fox in the Hall of Fame, but he has many television credits.
Television Credits (partial list)
Dancing With The Stars (Season 11)
Melrose Place (2009)
Ugly Betty (2006)
One Tree Hill (2003)
The Game (Recurring Role 2006)
Alongside his amazing career, and hot good looks, an interesting point I did not know while researching information on Rick Fox is he suffered with ADD. He was diagnosed as an adult, and treated. He still use exercises to help him maintain focusing.
One of the most talent performers is Prince! I remember hearing one of Prince's first songs. It was called Soft and Wet. I remember it clear as if it was yesterday, I was playing in my mom's long locks of curly hair. This song came on the radio, and I stopped in my tracks. I immediately stop playing in my mum's hair, and I said WHO IS THAT!?I listened intensely to the song, his voice was sweet, smooth, and silky the song was just an invitation into his song. After the song finished the announcer said, "and that is Prince with Soft and Wet". I did not go to the record store right away, of course I did not have any money, but I was begging my mother to take me to the record store to buy a 45. Oh yeah, this was back in the days of 45s and LPs. When I finally did talk my mother into going to the record store OMG, when I saw the album cover he was the most adorable man I had ever seen. Prince was sporting this huge Afro.
Prince Roger Nelson
All these years I thought Prince was his stage name. It takes writing on Hub Pages, to discover Prince is his real name (LOL). He was named after the Prince Roger Trio, for whom his father was a pianist. Prince has an extensive list of accomplishments including discovering other female singers such as Sheila E. with her smash single Glamorous Life, (I Sheila E. was a one hit wonder any who) and Apollonian.
Prince's hits include, but not limited to:
1978 For You
1980 Dirty Mind Album

Prince's album Purple Rain sold 10 million copies, and of course it flung him into super stardom.

Coping with a sickly sibling took a toll on the family unit, Ashton's brother Michael needed a heart transplant, and medical bills were stacked high. Ashton attempted suicide by trying to jump off off a balcony, his father stopped him from jumping. Times were very difficult for the Kutcher household. Ashton tried to burglarize his high school in order to steal money. He was caught, and convicted of third-degree burglary sentenced to three years probation, and community service.

Currently he has investments in a few restaurants. Dolce, an Italian restaurant, Geisha House which has two locations one in Atlanta, and one in Los Angeles.
Kutcher success blossed when he landed his role in That 70's Show, playing Michael Kelso. I totally thought this show was one of the all time dorky shows ever, I kept watching this kid Kelso, and I just fall in love with the show. (oh and of course Kutcher)
